Valley National Bank, a community bank with branches in Kansas and Colorado, is offering mobile payments to its customers and community with Bling Nation.
Customers with a checking account at Valley National Bank can sign up for a BlingTag, a quarter-sized microchip sticker that adheres to the back of their mobile phone to enable debit transactions directly from their account. Each time a purchase is made using a BlingTag, the consumer receives a transaction confirmation and account balance via text message.
There is also a rewards program when using the BlingTag. Valley National Bank customers receive 5% cash back with every Bling transaction up to $100.
